Jeremy Corbyn has met the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, and has outlined Labour’s plans for Brexit, should the opportunity arise.
‘Labour is a government in waiting and we are ready to take up the responsibility for Brexit negotiations’.
‘Labour respects the referendum result and the decision to leave the European Union, but a Labour Brexit would look very different to the race-to-the-bottom tax haven backed by this Conservative Government’.
‘In contrast to the Conservatives’ megaphone diplomacy, we will conduct relations with our European neighbours respectfully and in the spirit of friendship’.
‘Labour would negotiate a jobs-first Brexit deal which puts the economy, jobs and living standards front and centre’.
‘Labour wants to work with other countries to build a different Europe, one which promotes human rights and environmental protections, celebrates the positive and complementary contributions of European nations, and where trade is fair and sustainable’.
